Siliconera Is Moving To A New Server

By Spencer . April 22, 2014 . 10:37pm


Hey everyone, we have had a lot of server problems this past week. Siliconera has grown way beyond our capacity and we are in the process of moving hosts. This might take some time for Siliconera to refresh depending on how long it takes for the DNS to update. We’ll be back real soooooon!

    Hopeful that you guys will do what’s best to make our experience here that much smoother!

  • Quinnjdq

    Best of luck!

  • Migration is all done! Let us know if there are any problems.

  • s07195

    I see, so that’s why I’ve had problems accessing the website at times. :)

  • Nice. Hope there are no more problems now =)

  • Crevox

    +1 for Dinosaur Office

  • Senka

    I wonder if the weird rotating of mobile layouts last week and the random disabling of comments today were related to this.

    • Anything that went wrong with the site the last week or so is likely connected to the server issues. Things have been very unstable at the back-end for the last few days.

  • Letrico

    Mobile site is not loading at all. Infinite loading loop

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      This is not the end for Siliconera, because only you are in the infinity loop.

        Do i smell a challange?

    • Chris Bobb

      I’ve experienced this amazing inifinite loop on mobile, as well.

    • DesmaX

      Same here

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    no more “Error establishing a database connection?

    • anthony apduhan

      *gasp* you experienced it too?! Seems I’m not alone!

      • God

        You are never alone on the internet! Neither are you unique though (And yes, your mommy did lie to you).

    • Christopher Nunes

      I see another victim of that terrible problem as well.

      • s07195

        Glad to see that it wasn’t only my problem. XD

  • anthony apduhan

    My problem is when I click the article it loads slowly than expected…

    • Better than not loading at all at this point.

  • s07195

    Actually scratch that, I’ve had several problems with the site seemingly offline. Even from going to this article from the main page… XD

    • s07195

      Also this.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Just don’t change like Gamespot did. That site is so unusable now and resource heavy. Simple is the best.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    All I can think of when I see that Triceratops is a Siliconera exclusive MH armor and weapon set.

    In all seriousness, that’s a cool mascot that needs to be utilized more to grow the brand…if that is Siliconera’s aim….Actually, scratch that; I love this niche part of the internet.

    Oh, and I’m still having errors on mobile and through my browsers.

  • tubers

    GL guys! Yeah, was having issues for a short while now.. nothing major tho.

  • Fox

    Maybe you woudn’t have as much server load if you didn’t have such an assinine mobile version of the site? Just a thought.

  • NimbusStev

    Do what you gotta do to keep this awesome site running smoothly! This is one of my favorite websites on the internet. You guys are the best!
